TESTIMONIALS

  • “We just visited the Food Truck this morning. Amazing food & amazing service!! My husband is not celiac so he’s tried churros multiple times in Mexico and locally. I ‘allowed’ him a couple of bites and he said they are the best he has ever had!” Kathy P.
  • “To die for! What’s not to love … cinnamon …  sugar… crunchy … strawberry sauce … marshmallows … chocolate chips … he even has a little baby flame thrower to roast the mallows! Family run business, so sweet. Very kind folks!”  Tanja Blondin, B-glutenfreevictoria

About Jorge

While pursuing a poli-sci degree, Jorge (pronounced ‘Hor-he’) was inspired to start his own business. What better motivation than to share the recipes that his grandmother developed for his celiac father.  CHURROS & MOR was born!

Yes! Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet literally run through Jorge’s veins. His niece in England also shares the diagnosis. Her family has chosen a vegan lifestyle, so Jorge knows first hand how challenging it is to find delicious gluten-free AND vegan delicacies!

Van Isle Poutinerie DanielleAbout Danielle!

“I’ve been working in restaurants for almost 20 years now. Food has been a big passion of mine most of my life. As a person who lives with food sensitivities and hearing from diners how hard it is for them to find safe – and tasty – gluten free food, I am became very aware of the challenges that many diners face.”

“My mom took me to a food truck festival in Edmonton when I was a kid and I was so hooked on the idea. I have friends from elementary school who say they remember me talking about having my own truck one day. My husband nurtured that dream and was instrumental in making my it come true.”


Van Isle Poutinerie x 3 ig“My business partner Ashley jumped on board to get the ball rolling and by early September 2022, we decided to go for it!  We purchased a truck just two weeks later and had our launch just a month after that, in what may have been the snowiest December on record!”

“We are over the moon to see how warmly we have been received, not only by people with food sensitivities, vegans and vegetarians, but by the food truck community who often sends their customers our way for the food they need. A big thanks to everyone!”

Victoria Buzz, February 2023

  • A year and a half in the making and the Westshore Town Centre is becoming more delicious by the minute! The first of its kind tater-tot shop, Totchos, has opened its doors with fanfare. Attributing the lengthy wait for the restaurant launch to implications involving labour shortages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Totchos co-owner, Ashley Reardon says the delayed launch has made all the difference to the early success of the business. It was insane. We were lined up outside the door on Friday (February 10th) when we opened. We had the tables flipping every half an hour to 45 minutes,” said Reardon. Having to close an hour early due to a shortage of food, Reardon tells Victoria Buzz the wave of support and welcome she and her husband have received at the Westshore Town Centre has helped them feel at home and further inspired them to run a business in Langford. “We moved out to Langford because it’s a quieter area but there’s less stuff going on for our kids. We are big kids so we kind of just brainstormed and we were like, let’s just do something fun,” says Reardon. Known as the only restaurant on Vancouver Island serving a delicious variety of tater-tot inspired meals, Totchos holds a deeper meaning to Reardon as a tribute to her late mother, Charlene, who passed away in October 2022. “She couldn’t see it open but she was really excited. Most of the recipes are hers and I learned all my cooking from her,” says Reardon. As a child, Reardon’s parents would infuse tater tots into meals with additional healthy ingredients to help inspire Reardon and her siblings to eat balanced meals. A concept that Reardon has passed onto her children, the new restaurateur tells Victoria Buzz that the realization of this business has come full circle as her eldest daughter encouraged her to pursue the business. “I was sitting with my oldest daughter one day and she’s like, mom if we ever can we should open a tater tot restaurant. I ended up getting a settlement, and we were just like, okay let’s try this,” says Reardon. For those curious about what’s offered on the menu, Reardon wants guests to know there’s a meal waiting for everyone. “We’re 90% gluten-free, there are only three things on our menu that isn’t gluten free. We also have plenty of vegan and keto options,” says Reardon.

Victoria Buzz, August 17, 2022

  • Get your bellies ready, Langford. A new eatery is coming to town and there’s nothing like it in the region. Opening across from Winners / HomeSense in at Westshore Town Centre, Totchos will be serving up loaded tater tots, hand-helds (fancy tacos), snacks and soft serve ice cream, with lots of vegan, low-carb and no sugar options as well. “⁠We are thrilled to announce the arrival of a brand-new retailer opening at Westshore Town Centre this Fall,” Marketing Manager Kelly McClure⁠⁠ Marketing said in an email to Victoria Buzz. Totchos is locally owned and while no specific opening date was announced, it is slated to open this fall. “The owners are very excited to be opening this first-of-its-kind restaurant at Westshore Town Centre and to serve up delicious food and fun to the Westshore community,” said McClure. Even better, each table at the restaurant will be equipped with a built-in retro video gaming system for loads of family fun!⁠

Van Isle Poutinerie DanielleAbout Danielle!

“I’ve been working in restaurants for almost 20 years now. Food has been a big passion of mine most of my life. As a person who lives with food sensitivities and hearing from diners how hard it is for them to find safe – and tasty – gluten free food, I am became very aware of the challenges that many diners face.”

“My mom took me to a food truck festival in Edmonton when I was a kid and I was so hooked on the idea. I have friends from elementary school who say they remember me talking about having my own truck one day. My husband nurtured that dream and was instrumental in making my it come true.”


Van Isle Poutinerie x 3 ig“My business partner Ashley jumped on board to get the ball rolling and by early September 2022, we decided to go for it!  We purchased a truck just two weeks later and had our launch just a month after that, in what may have been the snowiest December on record!”

“We are over the moon to see how warmly we have been received, not only by people with food sensitivities, vegans and vegetarians, but by the food truck community who often sends their customers our way for the food they need. A big thanks to everyone!”

  • TESTIMONIAL:  Just had dinner last night at the 6 Mile Pub on Old Island Highway. Wow! I have eaten here before but was amazed again at the GF menu selection, presentation, deliciousness, and the feeling of safety eating there. We went with another family and it was so awesome that I could share food with others who easily ordered GF even though they aren’t Celiac because there is just so many good things to choose from. The calamari is the best I have had anywhere. All the desserts were gluten free. How is this possible I wondered? I asked the waitress and she told me the chef is Celiac! We need more Celiac chefs that are this creative!! This has got to be best restaurant for dinner for Celiacs in the Victoria area.

David Wong, Six Mile PubOur Gluten-Free Hero & Industry Pioneer, David Wing is a 2023 BC Restaurant Hall of Fame Inductee! !

Owner of the Oldest Pub in British Columbia, the Six Mile Pub + Eatery, David considers himself an accidental restauranteur.

He was introduced to the restaurant industry by his brother-in-law, Joseph Heng, only as a means to pay for his studies at the University of Victoria. David had always aspired to become a clinical psychologist.

Chandlers Restaurant, a member of the Keg family of restaurants at the time, and where David was working as a bistro cook, offered him a full-time kitchen management position. David took the job, anticipating that he would eventually return to fulfill his dream of becoming a psychologist.

Before long, this accidental choice of livelihood had become a career. Ultimately, both the work of a clinical psychologist care of people, which had always been David’s impetus anyways.

Over the decades since, David has schooled himself across a wide spectrum of the industry – from managing corporate restaurants such as the Keg and Milestones, to running the food and beverage operations for a cruise ship, operating a tiny mom-and-pop wrap and smoothie health bar, and for the past 20+ years, owning and actively operating the oldest pub in BC, the Six Mile Pub + Eatery in Victoria. His focus on warm, authentic hospitality and wholesome foods has earned this heritage pub a “Best Pub to Take a Kid” award, as well as consecutive “Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Pub in Victoria”.

When he is not serving guests at his Pub, David along with his wife, Fancy, serves the community, with their Fancy + David Foundation, which funds charities, programs and activities that help steer local youths towards positive, productive pathways.

While he does not profess to know everything about the industry; In fact, he claims to know very little, he has been conducting weekly classes at his pub, to share what little he knows with his many young, passionate staff who are building careers in our industry.

At this stage of his accidental career, is to give a little back to the industry that has given him so much!
